EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants began building for 2020 the moment they made the switch from Eli Manning to Daniel Jones at quarterback one month ago. They said all the right things about hoping to make a run for the playoffs, and that's not out of reach. But they know their real target for contention is now next year.
That makes the Oct. 29 trading deadline an interesting one for Giants GM Dave Gettleman. It's a chance to accumulate draft picks to continue the youth movement he began back in March if he decides to get rid of some veterans and their bloated contracts. Of course, right now they're only one game out of first place in the NFC East.
